What do you due when your 6 year old is getting bullying at school and the school does nothing?

I would work more on empowering your child to handle this herself. I'm not saying she should constantly go and tell. I'm suggesting that she position herself in an area that is near the adults in charge.



The next best step is to teach her how to laugh and walk away. Bullies thrive on being able to make you feel bad, so laughing at what they have to say diffuses their fire. Likewise, when she walks away, walking toward a grown up will also diffuse the bully.

Thanks for the advice, I have talk to her regarding that issue and told that it is always best to go and notify the teacher, aid, or any other adult that works at the school....the only problem is that she has done so, but the school seem that there are so afraid of this other child mom that they dare not to confront her. I try talking to her, but her mouth is so big that i was not going stand around and hear her mouth me while my child was there. Once again i appreciated the great advise.

Teach her (him?) how to stand up to bullying. There are a few websites dedicated to teaching kids how to handle bullies. The first thing to teach them is to head for a teacher as soon as the bullying starts. Oftentimes, simply hanging out NEAR a teacher or a recess aide will get the action noticed.
